1% of the market, let's get perspective of what to expect today. hampton, the fiscal cliffs and markets, many folks looking at their 401(k)s on friday, that dropped by a good amount. how jittery are the indices right now? >> we were poised for a negative open. futures were reporting to stocks declined even more than the 1% you mentioned. the markets like most americans, concerned about the stalemate right now on any sort of even short-term deal to avoid going over that fiscal cliff on january 1. so no surprise the market's in negative territory. you've got the numbers right there in front of us right from the opening. now, on the flip side the markets had priced in some kind of a deal and that's why post election day we had seen the markets overall going up. but right now make no mistake about it, the fiscal cliff doubts in getting to january 1 without some kind of even a patchwork deal is what's driving the markets right now in negative territory. >> as we know, it's not a cliff, it's really a slope or series of steps as you're falling down them should a deal not come to pass here. is the drop that we've seen so far after plan b's failure, will we see yet more of the market reacting, a slow degradati

assignment. you are absolutely right now. s a for the fiscal cliff talks, i'm told that there have been some fresh talks at the staff level but the hard work is not going to get done until lawmakers return to washington, that's expected to happen after the christmas holiday and at this point there's not a lot of time left and hopes for a grand bargain, president obama and house speaker boehner had been working on have all but evaporated right now. making sure that the steep tax hikes don't go in to effect. president obama on friday saying he would accept a deal as long as it does not allow taxes to go up on middle class americans, as long as it extends unemployment insurance and lays the groundwork for deficit reduction in the future. so there's sort of scaling back their expectations. house speaker boehner tried to get an alternative bill passed through the house last week. that failed. the focus shifts to the senate. reid and mcconnell will really be charged with trying to hammer out the fine details of that deal that can make it through the senate and through the house so that is the

pretty big issues. >> 30 hours to go until the country hits the fiscal cliff and still no deal. i'm melissa rayberger, and the white house has sent one of its top negotiators to capitol hill, but right now it's all centered on the senate, and as democrats dig in to protect social programs, republicans do the same on taxes. >> raising taxes to pay for new spending is not something that republicans believe this debate ought to be about. it ought to be about reducing the deficit and the debt, and what they are essentially suggesting is we want new taxes. we want higher taxes on people in this country to pay for new spending. >> so what happens next? with us nbc news capitol hill correspondent mike vic rah and nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. mike, let's get started with you. what's happening right now in the senate. i understand there's an update on the chained cpi. >> reporter: they say the darkest hour right before the dawn, melissa. everybody ought to hope that's true, at least if you don't want to see your taxes go up on midnight on monday and tuesday night because everything seems to be at a standstill right now. let's review the bidding. here it is from a republican

way febreze helps you breathe happy. >>> right now the bill to pull us back from the fiscal cliff heads to the house. at this hour they're starting to gather in the house chamber and will reconvene in 90 minutes. we are waiting to hear if there will be a vote today. the senate approved its version early this morning with an 89-8 vote. i'll talk to a republican congressman in a moment about how he plans to vote on the bill. i'm mara schiavocampo. here's a quick look at other stories making news now. >>> today 1 million workers in ten states get a bit of a boost in their pay checks. the minimum wage increases from 10 to 35 cents per hour depending on where you live. >>> in afghanistan the timetable for turning over security from nato to the afghans is on schedule with the next phase ontrack to begin in two months. the transition will give afghan forces full control by the end of 2014. and it's a very different, very quiet scene this morning in times square on this first day of 2013. last night was a little different. about a million people welcomed in the new year with the famous ba

the fiscal cliff. they don't want to give up things. they don't want to give up cuts to medicare or social security in order to get a deal that may not be best for them. if you look at game theory, you know, economic and political game theory, if all the players understand the strategies of the other players and act rationally, sometimes they won't move off the strategy that they are on. >> should americans have optimist about this 3:00 meeting this afternoon at the white house or basically it's humpty-dumpty, we're going off the wall, we're going to break, but we can be put back together. >> it doesn't mean they won't get an agreement on the phone, but i don't remember any high-plo file white house meeting producing anything other than leaked stories about how one leader told the other leader how tough he is and how weak the other guy is. these are, generally speaking made for optics, so we talk about it. >>> jonathan allen, great to see you, thank for your time. >> my pleasure. >>> we talked in the last segment about the milk cliff, it looks like the container cliff will be averte

are feeling right now, gang. about the fears of the fiscal cliff. deal likely at 50%, deal not likely at 48%. and this is gone down continually as we have seen, lynn, over several days, whether more optimism before the christmas holiday and continues to evaporate the closer to the cliff but talking about what the president can do coming back, can it about a small stop gap measure to save people after the 1st? >> it could be and i've always thought that the they know if they don't at least do a stop gap which is in their power, therefore, they would probably do it. it means that the december deadline, december 31 deadline that's looming may not really be the deadline. i think it's more like january 3rd, noon, when the new congress is sworn in. that's when they have to do their math to see where do they have -- if there's any hope of a deal, a democratic deal, where you need 20, 30 min votes or true bipartisan deal and no one thinks will happen. now people are just working some numbers to see which would work best if you don't get anything by the end of the year. >> alice, based

., coming back from hawaii, trading his tropical vacation for the hard reality of the fiscal cliff negotiations. the president called all four congressional leaders last night in an effort to reach a deal, but did that call fall on deaf ears? jared bernstein, former chief economist to vip biden, as well as a contributor. i want to start with the new statement from senator mitch mcconnell's office coming out says last night he called other lead serious. the leader is happy to review what the president has in mind, but to day date the majority has not put forward a plan. jared, is that good they're actually speaking, however far apart as it may sound, at least they're talking? >> it's a bit good. better to be talking than north. the unfortunate thing are the words they're saying. i don't hear much compromise or kind of conciliation in the statements we've heard thus far. i do hear a lot of theatrics, you go first, no you go first. it's strange to say the democrats haven't put forth any legislation on this, because in fact they have. in fact, a democratic majority in the senate passed

u.n. disability treaty right in front of bob dole. this fiscal cliff, three budget standoffs. i mean, this congress has been uniquely atrocious. >> tom? >> the fact is the system is rigged. 75% of the congressmen come from gerrymandered districts in which they are bulletproof. they only play to one constituency. there are no swing states. they don't go home and have a case because they've got a choir back home. and that's a huge part of the problem here. there's another reality in this town today. we need a lighter moment here. a lot of folks as i was coming into the office today said they have to get it done by kickoff time tonight. >> that's right. >> it's a good thing nbc moved the kickoff to primetime. it's very important. >> arguably, the redskins could clinch today. i think it's also important to go back to the president's argument, that, you know, you have to be able to say yes to something that's reasonable. charles krauthammer and other conservatives argued that he's effectively exposed big internal divisions in the republican party that they have yet to work out, which prev

hour the house officially will clock in and take up the senate fiscal cliff vote for last night. here's what we know will happen after that. nancy pelosi will brief her democratic caucus at noon as well joined by a very special guest, vice president joe biden. at 1:00 p.m. eastern speaker john boehner briefs his caucus in what our own luke russert calls the most important meeting of the day. after that we should get a sense of when a vote would take place and whether the speaker will allow any amendments. we'll keep bringing you the latest information on that fiscal cliff deal. and of course every new year brings a series of new and sometimes kind of strange new laws. 2013 is no exception. here are just a couple. in illinois motorcyclists will not be able to proceed through a red light if it fails to change. even if it's broken they just have to stay there forever. >>> in kentucky it will no longer be legal to release feril or wild hogs into the wild. in florida, swamp buggies will now legally be considered motor vehicles. >>> all in all over 400 new laws are on the books today
